M&A Source Chairman, 2012
As a 15-year member of IBBA and M&A Source, I have watched the two associations morph into what they are today, two very vibrant and educational-oriented organizations serving their memberships.
Serving on the board of the M&A Source for several years and being selected as Chairman in 2012 was a great honor for me. I will look forward to continuing to contribute to both associations. My participation plan in the future is to serve on committees and teach as much as I can.
My biggest challenge for 2012 was navigating the transition to a new management firm, but this challenge was completed successfully, and will be viewed in the future as a "winning move."
Being Chairman of the M&A Source will always remain one of the top experiences of my M&A career and the memories of this year will greatly influence me going forward.
